  1. Thanks so much. Thats what I remember doing now but thought I used the card. I appreciate your help.
  2. Just want to clarify your statement...I will be coming back from Italy next month thru JFK. I can't find my GE card (I put it in a 'safe' place but that was almost 2 years ago) but I can still use the GE kiosk with just my passport? That would be great.
  3. Since the Escape hasn't sailed yet, it's hard to find things specific to that ship. The closest you will probably come is if someone from the recent Breakaway cruises has the O'Sheehans menus. But I am sure it is probably similar to the Local, which is basically the same restaurant with a different name.
  4. Thanks for this information. We board in 16 days and cannot wait. How was the weather in the ports?
  5. Thank you so much for all of this information. Enjoyed it very much. We board in a few weeks. Not sure if I missed this but do you know how many passengers were onboard? Just trying to gauge waits for dining on such a port intensive cruise. And appreciate the disembarkation information. We have a flight at noon to Milan so want to get to the airport as soon as we can. Safe travels home.
  6. Thank you for this information. We board in 35 days so any updates you can provide are appreciated. Have a wonderful cruise.
  7. Do you know if these sites will test you if you are not a NY resident? I have an 11 hour layover on my way to Athens for the NCL Jade next month. I arrive Thursday morning but won't be on the Jade until Sunday so any test I take at home will be longer than 72 hours. Also sailing out of Bayonne 3 weeks later on RCL and will need a test 48 hours in advance (staying in Manhattan 2 days prior). I would rather do the tests at one of these sites than the airport. Thanks for your response and have a great time in Bermuda.
  8. Who did you book your private transportation with?
  9. @graphicguyjust wanted to check back in after my Encore 9/4 sailing and tell you that you MUST try Onda. It was amazing. All four of us had a different appetizer and they were all wonderful. 2 of the group had the filet that must have been 4 inches thick and cooked perfectly, while 2 of us had the tagliatelle with lobster, which was also very tasty. 3 different desserts (pistachio cheesecake, which was proclaimed better than expected), tiramisu and I had the Butterscotch Budino, which was even better than the last time. But to top it all off, the waitstaff brought us a pizza, which we didn't order, and it was by far the best thing we ate on the ship. We talked about this pizza for the rest of the cruise and were trying to figure out when we would have time to get another one (we didn't...I even asked the F&B manager if we could get one for lunch but of course the answer was no). I don't know the name of it but it starts with an M and has prosciutto on it. If you only go to one specialty restaurant, make it Onda and get this pizza!
  10. Check out the Bliss 5-day Mexican Riviera cruise in January...$2029 p/p for the Haven.
  11. The VIP party on the 9/4 Encore sailing was on our first sea day (Sunday) from 7pm to 7:45pm. I had to miss it because I had dinner reservations for Onda.
  12. Unfortunately, Clarense "Chocolate Cowboy" is not currently on the Encore. But get a pic of the red plastic solo cups in Q.
  13. I got off the Encore last Saturday and my points were updated by Sunday morning. I didn't change levels so it didn't really matter but as others mentioned, I would stop by the Latitudes desk and inquire to get the perks added for your 2nd cruise.
